At 2nd Family in Parsippany, NJ, our personal care services for seniors are designed to support the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) with a focus on maintaining well-being and enhancing quality of life. Understanding the challenges seniors face in maintaining personal hygiene, our services include support with bathing, dressing, grooming, shaving, brushing teeth, and toileting. We recognize that these tasks are not just routine; they are integral to preserving a senior’s dignity and self-esteem​​.

Often, family caregivers find it uncomfortable to assist with these intimate tasks. Our trained caregivers step in to provide respectful and empathetic assistance, ensuring that every aspect of personal grooming is taken care of. This includes help with hair and teeth brushing, face shaving, makeup application, and selecting a comfortable wardrobe. Our goal is to ensure that your loved one feels clean, confident, and ready to face the day. By providing these essential services, we relieve family members of the worry associated with personal care, allowing them to focus more on quality time spent together​​.

At 2nd Family, we approach personal care services in Parsippany not as a checklist of tasks but as an opportunity to enhance the daily lives of seniors. We tailor our services to fit the individual needs and preferences of each senior, ensuring that they receive not only the physical support they require but also the emotional support that comes from compassionate care. Our services are a testament to our commitment to delivering care that respects the individuality and dignity of each senior we serve.

Personal Care Services FAQ

How do you handle seniors who are resistant to receiving personal care?

It’s common for seniors to feel uncomfortable with the idea of receiving personal care, especially from someone they’re not familiar with. At 2nd Family, we approach this sensitively by allowing time for the senior to get comfortable with their caregiver. We focus on building trust and rapport, ensuring our caregivers are matched based on compatibility and personal interests. Gradual introduction of services and maintaining as much independence as possible can also help ease resistance. Often, we recommend starting with companion care in these circumstances.

What if a senior requires more specialized care than a caregiver can provide?

If a senior’s needs surpass the scope of what our caregivers can provide, we coordinate with healthcare professionals to ensure they receive the appropriate level of care. We also provide training to our caregivers to handle specific conditions like dementia. When necessary, we can assist families in seeking additional resources or services that may better fit the senior’s needs without the need to move into facility care or an assisted living home.

How does 2nd Family ensure the safety of seniors during personal care tasks?

Safety is a top priority for us. Our caregivers are trained in safe techniques for mobility assistance and transferring to prevent falls and injuries. They are also educated on recognizing and responding to potential health emergencies. Regular assessments are conducted to adapt care plans according to changing needs, ensuring that each senior’s environment is as safe and comfortable as possible.
